MY CAR ENGINE "BLEW UP", SO I LEFT IT AT THE GARAGE. EVENTUALLY I DECIDED TO GET THE GARAGE TO GET THE CAR SCRAPPED , IT WAS ASN AUDI A6 ESTATE, IT WOULD HAVE COST 2,000 TO PUT IN A NEW ENGINE.
I HAD MISPLACED MY PAPERS FOR THE CAR DUE TO SHIFTING PREMISES, SO I WROTE A NOTE ALLOWING THE GARAGE TO HAVE THE TOW TRUCK PICK IT UP FOR THE SCRAP YARD.
SINCE THEN THE CAR HAS BEEN REREGISTERED AND IS ON THE ROAD AGAIN, THE DVLA HAS WRTTEN TO ME AND I HAVE TO GO TO COURT TO AS I HAVE BEEN CHARGED WITH AN OFFECE OF NOT SENDING IN CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP, BUT I DIDNT CHANGE OWNERSHIP.
I AM PLEADING NOT GUILTY, THE HEARING IS AT CRAWLEY AT 10 AM MONDAY.
IT SEEMS TO BE ACRIMINAL OFFENCE BUT IM NOT A CRIMINAL, AND I MUST AD MIT I WAS NEGLIGENT FOR NOT KNOWING THE LAW PROPERLY AS IM FROM AUSTRALIA.
HOW SOULD I APPROACH THE BAR.
THANK YOU.
